LATVIA

The Latvian Semi-Finals were held at the Riga Film Studio, hosted by Justs Sirmais & Dagmara Legante. The top 2 songs in each semi-final qualified for the final. The finalists were chosen by televoting/online voting/spotify listens (50%) & an "expert" jury (50%). The first column of results is the placings of the televoting/online voting/spotify listens and the second is the "expert" jury. After the semi-finals were held an "expert" jury awarded a 'wildcard' to the final to one of the losing semi-finalists. Due to a technical failure with the online voting in the 2nd Semi-Final, the internet votes were excluded from the result, as a consequence of which Markus Riva moved up to 2nd place and was awarded a place in the final.
